Due to the General Election, the Yorkshire & Humber regional seminar has been postponed from 9th Dec to Wed 15th January at North Yorkshire County Council. Invitations to follow!
50 towns have already been shortlisted to receive a proportion of the extra funds, which will see bus services expanded and empty retail units transformed into homes.
The maximum award under the scheme is £25 million, but the majority of towns will receive between £5 and £10 million.
The extra money comes after 50 UK retailers including Marks & Spencer, Sainsbury’s and Boots wrote to the Chancellor to call for action on high property taxes.
